Having recently bought loose wormwood from a local health food store and researching possible effects/side effects. During my research I found little information as to dosages other than 2 tablespoons give or take for for the riddance of worms and parasites.
Preparation- weighed out 2 tablespoons and placed the leaves into a tea ball, boiled water and let it steep for about 30 minutes. The tea was incredibility bitter, and took about half a cup of sugar to make it tolerable.
Effects- After about an hour I saw mild white-yellow swirls (nothing too noticeable) and had a mild high feeling. After having gone to bed I woke from an VERY vivid nightmare of being attacked by a giant spider on the bed, I remember wanting to yell during the dream but being able to and eventually falling off of the bed (in dream). After which I woke up.
Am willing to experiment with wormwood again in the future and was not an overly unpleasant experience.
